And by the way, did Gerasimou either get anned or retire because she hasnt played since 2010
We have Daniilidou and Papamichail even though we are missing Georgatou and Gerasimou. Daniilidou and Papamichail should be enough to beat Bosnia. Eleni said that she is feeling 100% now and she is still in the team but I'm not sure if she will play because she said her next tournament is Pattaya . And now I see that Jugic-Salkic is playing a challenger in Australia so we have a good shot against Bosnia, even if Eleni doesn't play

They were Stefanie Vogt in Glasgow (career high), Amra Sadikovic in Helsinki (just won a 50k beating some top players) and the third was putintseva in juniors (had just won eddie herr and was in orange bowl final). Anett beat Putintseva 6262, Sadikovic was 36 63 63 sadikovic but anett was 3-0 40-0 in 3rd set and against vogt, 64 75 included set points in the second set and break points at 4-4 on vogts serve first set. Despina Papamichail is only ranked so highly because she plays a lot of tournaments. Kontaveit played 9, and won 3. She woudl beat Papamichail 2 and 2 or something along those lines
None of those girls were ever top 200 . Despina doesn't even play that many tournaments, and when she does she plays challengers in Spain and France, which don't really have soft draws. I'm not saying Annett wouldn't beat Despina but 2 and 2 is a little harsh on Despina IMO

So you expect Tinjic to beat Daniilidou and Husaric to beat Papamichail?

Where is Mayr-Achleitner?

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

ANNA GERASIMOU-EIRINI GEORGATOU ALWAYS AND FOREVER

You are right about greece beating bosnia now. At the time I thought Eleni was injured and that Jugic Salkic was playing.

And by the way, it is completely relevant when I said Anett would be top 100 when she was 18. You said that Despina was top 400 and that she was only 18!!!I said that when Anett was only 18!!!! then she would be top 100. The people anett played were nearly top 200. Despina would lose to all of them in straight sets comfortably

Re: Europe/Africa Zone I 2012

And by the way, Despina just lost to Manisha Foster ranked 778 61 75. You dont think Anett would beat her 2 and 2 if anett was playing her best.
You are so stupid. And you said Despina played challengers in france and spain, well she hasnt made it past the second round in 6 months and recently lost first round in a 10k in england
